Atlanta, Georgia – The office of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is under scrutiny once again, this time over allegations of misusing federal grant funds intended for child protection and sexual assault prevention programs. This new investigation comes in the wake of a prior inquiry initiated by GOP members in the House earlier this year.

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) have penned a letter addressed to Willis, expressing concerns about potential misuse of funds from grant programs designated to support a range of juvenile justice and child protection initiatives within the state. The letter, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, highlights the senators’ demand for additional information regarding the reported allegations.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) reportedly awarded a $500,000 grant to Willis’s office in 2020 for the establishment of the Fulton County Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention Center, aimed at providing support to youth at risk of involvement in gang activity. However, news reports cited in the senators’ letter suggest that a portion of this grant may have been misused.

Additionally, a substantial amount of funding, approximately $2 million, was earmarked for the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) by the Office of Justice Programs. The senators’ letter alleges discrepancies in the expenditure of these funds, stating that a significant percentage was reportedly utilized for travel, conference expenses, and professional services, such as forensic and DNA testing, raising further concerns.

The senators have requested a response from Willis no later than May 29, 2024, as they seek clarification and transparency regarding the use of these federal funds.

This recent Senate inquiry follows the Department of Justice’s acknowledgment of “inconsistencies” in Willis’s handling of the gang prevention grant funds, marking a continued spotlight on the administration of federal grants within the Fulton County DA’s office.
